Hey guys, I’ve noticed Novas poops have been looking like this? The only new thing I’ve introduced to her diet is cactus pads. Other than that she usually gets a variety of different greens or mazuri. Is this lighter green look something I should be worried about or could it be from the food?

It’s just her poop has never been that color usually it’s brownish black
You’re very smart to watch her physical behaviors, including poo! When someone can’t TELL us how they’re feeling, an understanding and devoted caregiver learns the PATTERNS of the animal (or infant human!) that are present when they are healthy. CHANGES in what we know to be “normal” for any individual is how we pick up signs of illness. External clues like, poo and urates, are very useful clues to their internal state! Poo is a common topic on the forum!!😁
GOOD JOB on noticing changes!!!😃👍
